The Deadly Spawn (1983)

Written and directed by Douglas McKeown, The Deadly Spawn aka Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn (1983) has always been a favorite of mine since I first checked it out on vhs back in the mid 80s. Fangoria magazine had done several articles highlighting the film, so I immediately snagged it for an evenings rental when I located a copy in a local video store.

The special effects in this tale of alien invasion are quite well done considering the low budget of this filmed in New Jersey independent feature. According to trivia for the film, the enthusiasm and quality of the production garnered enough attention that Paramount almost selected it for theatrical distribution.
